... In fact I am friends with all on board but I do wish sometimes I could meet an adult. They are all little boys. Some of them naughty little boys like the Brigadier, most of them delicious & just what I want Bron to be at the age of ten, but not one of them a mature man.Diogenes, as translated by Guy Davenport in 7 Greeks:
Men nowhere, but real boys at Sparta.
